You don’t have to spend much time in Lawrence to realize we embrace and support creativity in many different ways. We’re fortunate to have the dynamic Lawrence Arts Center offering many types of classes for all ages, and the arts-based social service program, Van Go, to foster creative pursuits in young people. In addition the free monthly arts festival, Final Fridays, allows artists to showcase their work throughout our town in many businesses and galleries. Lawrence has one of the highest percentages of working artists in the country per capita, and The Warehouse District has become the perfect area for those wanting space to create and display their works.
Located around 9th and Pennsylvania this section of town historically was filled with industrial and factory buildings, but has undergone an interesting transformation in recent years. It now houses art galleries, lofts, and the surrounding historic neighborhood. Recent preservation and development projects in this district have contributed to the revitalization of this small section of our community.
A highlight of the Warehouse Arts District is The Poehler Lofts, an old grocery warehouse that has been converted into a modern loft apartment building. A local favorite space within the Poehler Lofts is Cider Gallery, a gallery and event space featuring works by local artists.
The Kansas Food Truck Festival takes place in the Warehouse District, attracting thousands of foodies annually. The newest addition to the 1000 block of Delaware Street is the 9Dell Lofts, a newly constructed modern apartment complex with rent controlled units.
